Re: Orvis rod question
Here's some more information from Dave Hayward of Orvis. Byron
Trident TL's were our first compound tapered, high end (57mil) graphite, rod line, born in Vermont, with nice maple inserts, TiCr guides. TLS rods are the same graphite and taper, Plus the thermoplastic resins with a less expensive seat and guides but sell for about $200 less. The Power Matrix TLS is still made in Vermont with a new graphite reel seat and chromed guides vs. high end TiCr guidesets. Also has the Thermoplastic resins (for T3 toughness using the same 57Mil graphite. Hope that helps and this is the hardest question we have at "Orvis Days".
